The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday captured a man who fled from the county courthouse.

Police said in a statement on Facebook that deputies placed Pedro Andres Escamilla, 27, "into custody near IH-35 and Camron St. Escamilla will be transported to the Bexar County Jail where he will receive an add on charge for escape."

The arrest took place around 9:30 Tuesday evening.

It followed a day of minor social media amusement when the BCSO reported Escamilla was last seen running south from the courthouse, along the River Walk, wearing a khaki shirt and khaki pants. They later added that they believed he had discarded his shirt.

It was not clear why he may have fled the facility.
